North Greenwich Arena

The North Greenwich Arena, a prominent London venue used for sporting and entertainment events, will be temporarily transformed to host the trampoline and artistic gymnastics competitions, the basketball finals and the Paralympics wheelchair basketball events.

 

The arena, which was completed in 1999 for a major exhibition to celebrate the new millennium, sits smack dab on the point of the Meridian Line overlooking the River Thames from the Greenwich Peninsula.
